Technivorm coffee makers were the first to be certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) to conform to strict industry standards for proper coffee extraction, and they continue to be the highest regarded coffee brewers in the coffee enthusiast community. Designed to make the perfect full pot of coffee, The unique copper heating element of the Technivorm Moccamaster Grand maintains a brewing temperature between 198 and 205 degrees. The dual-phase hot plate holds the brewed coffee between 176 and 185 degrees in the glass carafe. Brewing is completed within 5 to 6 minutes. Simple water pathways ensure your water and coffee touch as few materials as possible to protect the delicate aromas. The cone-shaped filter and 9-hole water spray head encourage even extraction.
While most coffee experts will agree that a thermal carafe coffee maker is best at preserving the delicate aromas, the Technivorm Grand employs a special hot plate designed to avoid overcooking brewed coffee. Instead of using nearly the full power of the heating element, as do lower-end brands, the Grand switches at your discretion between 65 Watts and 48 Watts of power. The hot plate also switches off periodically. This increases the time which brewed coffee stays hot without turning the bottom of the pot into sludge. The hot plate automatically shuts off 100 minutes after brewing.
The driving force behind the stable brewing temperatures on the Technivorm Grand is its specially designed high-power copper heating element. View the video in the Product Demos tab to see what we mean by a unique design. Temperatures are very stable from start to finish, which is critical for proper coffee extraction. After testing our first Technivorm, we have confirmed reports that it is significantly quieter than traditional automatic drip coffee makers. This is owed to the high-quality materials used.
Technivorm designed the Moccamaster Grand to be simple to clean, so that parts do not build up residue that alters the taste of brewed coffee. Both the spray arm and brew basket are fully removable.The brew basket intentionally does not have an automatic drip stop, to prevent this kind of buildup in either the stopper or the carafe lid. The stopper can be manually closed, or set to half-open for small batches of coffee. The glass carafe is not dishwasher safe but rinses and cleans easily.
Every other part of the Technivorm Grand Moccamaster Coffee Brewer is chosen for quality and also a purpose. The solid aluminum body lasts a lifetime. The BPA-Free water tank is made from high-density plastic. The 9-Hole water spray head is chrome-plated copper. The Auto-Safety Shut-Off protects the coffee maker by powering down the heating element when all water is depleted from the tank.
